Don't be a douchebag: Facebook edition

No fewer than seventy gabillion (and counting) Facebook cigar groups exist and many many Cigarz Facebookerz belong to at least half of those, with a handful active participants.

Dude, it's really really hard to miss you.
No biggie, right?


Unless.  Oh yes. Unless.

Unless you happen to be friends with one of the oversharers. Then Facebook becomes the digital equivalent of Groundhog Day, but without Bill Murray's almighty quirkiness.  Here's how it goes:

Phase One: 
That's nice. A -----cigar with a pithy sentence or two. 
Oh. Same picture and text. 
Same pic and text. 

Or had to see the same Facebook post over and over and over...
Phase Two:
The picture and words. 
Picture. Words. Same. 
Is this ever going to stop? The same pictures and same damn words. 

Phase Three:
Dear God in heaven, is this ever going to stop?
What evil have I committed to make me have to look at this same picture and same text ad infinitum?
::scroll:: ::scroll:: ::scroll::
Unfriends that person, no longer caring about a long friendship or shared memories. You just want to stop seeing the same picture this decade. 

But I want people to see that I have this cigar, you say. 

No one cares.

There. I said it. And I know you aren't listening, instead thinking smugly, "You aren't talking about me. People want to see what I post."

Yes I am. And no...they don't. 

Choose two groups and post your picture. If you can't choose just two, then stagger your posts over the course of the day and change the damn text with each post. If you can't think of clever text to go with the picture, then why the hell are you putting it up at all?
